In Southern California, your car might just be your second home. Especially if you don’t have a garage, you know how hard it is to keep your home-away-from-home clean.

Smog, street parking, road trips, food, kids: Any of these things can result in a filthy ride. But state officials are concerned about a possible water shortage. They say a dirty car should be a badge of honor for Californians this year. 

We want to hear from you about the ways you keep your truck or car clean — and whether the statewide drought declaration is changing how you think about the car washing chore.
